We went at dinner time, so this might not apply to lunch or earlier. The dinner menu is not what it once was, and items on the other menus are not available. Best, in my opinion, not to hand someone a list of items she can't order.
The food was good, but not to the point to justify the expense. Appetizers should come before the main course-- if the main course arrives first, the patron should be asked whether the appetizer is still needed. Presentation was bland. As were sauces. The table next to ours sent food back.
Tables are really packed in-- I don't see how a someone with a walker or a wheelchair could navigate. And the noise makes it impossible to hear your waiter even if he is right next to you. You'll eat in silence or shout the whole meal, as will the fifteen people within 6 feet of you.
This place used to be great, but apparently the owners couldn't make a profit on great, so now it's, well, maybe a really good Outback Steakhouse but at 2-3 times the price.
I had read about Fire Fly several years ago in the Illinois magazine and thought if passing through Effingham in the future that I would love to have dinner there. Well, my husband and I were on the last leg of a 20 day road & cruise trip with friends. We all agreed that we wanted our last dinner to be special, and it was. FireFly did not disappoint!Our server,Josh, was excellent. Attentive but not intrusive and knowledgeable about the menu.
Would definitely return and recommend if in the area.
Great place with wonderful food. You won’t be disappointed!
We love the special Valentine menu. Fabulous food and spectacular service.
Fantastic experience on Valentine’s Day. The dining and wine selections at Firefly never disappoint. Service was a bit slow, but they were packed. Overall a great experience.
Fantastic meal and fantastic service. I’d go everyday if I could afford it.
The pre-fix menu for Valentine’s dinner was outstanding for 7 of the 8 courses. Though the presentation of the lobster tail was exquisite, the texture was not outstanding though it tasted ok. Service was outstanding once we settled in. At the beginning of the meal there were several miscues in short order, but the everything settled in it and it was a truly memorable evening.
Took my wife there on Valentines day. We were both really impressed with the food and service.
Sunday brunch at firefly is always amazing! The weather kept people home so the restaurant was quite, which we appreciate. We had a great meal and took a pizza to go for dinner!
Wow! I didn't expect much for a restaurant in the middle of nowhere. I was wrong! Food and service was fantastic. Probably the best Crab cakes we have ever had and we lived on the East Coast for several years. You are killin' it! Thanks.
